Affliction for Righteousness

In early 1998, God told Kathy and me to bind the power and authority of the Jezebel and bless our religious friends.   So we proceeded to follow God's direction and continued to do so for several days.  At this point, I awoke early one morning with a sharp pain in my lower back, which I recognized from past experience as described in a previous testimony titled "Stones Hurt."  I got up and immediately began to read from the word of God, Isaiah 52 & 53, out loud, as I had experienced being healed by doing so.  I arrived at the office late because of what I had been doing, and told Doyle what I had been experiencing.  He asked, "Have you been reading?", and I replied, "Yes!"  He said, "Well, keep it up, and we'll keep praying!"   After about two hours, the pain had subsided considerably, and I had an appointment to attend.  By the time I arrived home later that afternoon, the pain had begun to return with more severity than earlier.   However, I refused to give in and lay down, as I knew that would not help.  So with everything within me, I began to bind the Jezebel.  As I was entering the house, I was shouting at the top of my voice, and Kathy heard me over the hair dryer all the way at the other end of the house.  I continued with little relief, but I refused to give up.  I made myself eat some soup even though I didn't feel like eating.   Physically I was becoming weak, and I knew I needed some strength.  Finally, I began to cry out to God for His mercy that is everlasting.  I prayed, "Lord, I need mercy now!"  I humbled myself and asked Him if I had been disobedient to cause this attack, and very softly I heard God say, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all."  I was quickened to Psalms 34, and I knew God was saying that it was my obedience that brought this affliction.  Immediately, I was strengthened by the Spirit of God against the Jezebel (witchcraft) that was attacking my body.  I was even louder than before as the Spirit of God rose up in me and went after that spirit that had been afflicting me.  Within a matter of minutes, the pain completely subsided, and all the symptoms were gone.  I am truly thankful for God's mercy and grace on all those who continue to believe the Gospel!  Oh, by way, I continue to bind the works of the Jezebel and witchcraft as God leads with much more regularity than I would have ever considered necessary!  However, it is very beneficial!
